"I have been e-mailing a lot with Coach Cabral and I really like him. I have heard great things about Colorado from their Center John Guydon and also from my former teammate, Brandon Nicolas. John and I share the same trainer in Anaheim. Cabral invited me for their Junior Day but I could not make it. I will be going to their team summer camp."
He says the Buffs, Fighting Irish, and Sun Devils are after him the hardest and he plans on attending these summer camps.
Tyler plays Center at Mater Dei, but says he will also play a little defensive tackle this year. On offense, he feels he gets around well.
"I am a mobile lineman that gets from the first level to the second level in a hurry so I can take on a linebacker. I am very good at transferring my weight. I am also good at making my calls when I get to the line."
Perkins carries a 3.0 core GPA and is taking his SAT in May. He would like to major in Criminology or Physical Therapy.
